Prior to “UFC Fight Night 22,” middleweight top contender Chael Sonnen will be hosting a special Q&A session to address hard-hitting fan questions, as he embarks on his second consecutive title bout with reigning 185-pound champ Anderson Silva.
The last time Sonnen hosted a UFC Q&A was at UFC 115. He gave the media unforgettable quotes for weeks, as he verbally lambasted “The Spider” leading up to their UFC 117 clash. Expect for Part II to live up to the original masterpiece.
Not many gave the wrestler a chance to walk away victorious last month, but Sonnen shockingly dominated the once seemingly invincible champion. He thoroughly beat up Silva for 23 minutes and 10 seconds. Unfortunately, title bouts go for 25 ticks and Sonnen was unable to close the deal as he fell right into a triangle-armbar submission.
UFC president Dana White and Co. were so impressed with Sonnen’s performance in Oaktown that the promotion awarded him an immediate rematch. It’s believed their mulligan will either go down on New Year’s Eve or Super Bowl weekend.
UFC Fight Night 22 takes place on September 15th, but the official weigh-ins, as well as Sonnen’s comedy show, take place on the 14th. The Frank Erwin Special Events Center on the campus of the University of Texas will host both events.
